I am considering trialing hipp organic formula for my refluxy and constipated DD. we currently use c & g comfort and DP has suggested aptamil comfort but due to the fact it appears identical to c and g (just more expensive!) I said no. I thought hipp organic may be a better choice due to the prebiotics etc does anybody have experience? We are looking to change as her reflux has got worse and we can't use gaviscon due to constipation (I refuse to have her on laxatives "until her gut matures")
TIA!

It used to be cheaper than all of them when I used it for my DD1 8 years ago! I'm not sure what you want to know though....my DD was fine on it...but she never had reflux. She had no bother with constipation either.

I use it for my dd and used it for my ds4. They have both been fine on it and ut us one of the cheaper formulas.

I always use the hipp first milk, have never tried the follow on or the night time one that they do.

I font like the fact that they tell.you to make it up with 50deg temp water which goes against the guidlines re water temp if 79deg by nhs and who but hipp say its safe.

My dd is 23mths and has 5oz morning and evening and at her age i dont worry so much about the temp.

No problems with constipation for my two.

I'm afraid it caused constipation in my DD. She had been fine on
Aptamil and the constipation happened a week after switching to Hipp so I'm pretty sure it was the cause. Back on Aptamil now and no poo problems.

Also, the packaging is dreadful and really faffy and messy to use.
